Charity Fraud

With the immense challenges Colorado has encountered, from fires to floods to tragedy, our communities have shown their strength and generosity in contributing to organizations and causes to provide assistance to those in need.

Whether donations include food, clothing, shelter, volunteer work, or monetary gifts, do your research before you donate to make sure your charitable contributions are assisting those intended rather than line the pockets of scam artists.
